Below are 5 tips to help you travel green and keep our tourism industry sustainable:
Flying is the mode of transportation with the biggest carbon footprint. Avoid this and you will help keep your holidays a greener place. Travel on the ground as much as you can and only resort to flights for long distance journeys.
There are more and more green accommodations popping up around the world, do your research and make sure you stay in them.
When on your holiday, try and support the local economy. Buy food form local vendors and not large corporations and put your tourist money back into the hands of the local people.
Make sure that when you leave home for your holidays you unplug your belongings and switch everything off. Even just leaving things on standby can waste a lot of energy.
Make sure that whilst away you don’t waste resources which may be in short supply. Water is one example where you don’t need to leave taps running as often it will be in short supply.
These are just a few ways the travelling green can help us preserve the world to enjoy much more in years to come.
